Synopsis

Fantastic Faces to Paint Yourself! by Thomasina Smith

This title lets you become a pirate, a ghoul, a spotty dog, and more. Features: 25 fantastic disguises to turn you into the zaniest characters - become an alien, paint on your sports kit and even become a birthday present; all the techniques are fully explained - from applying the base paint and making up lips and eyes, to taking care of equipment and removing the paint afterwards; Thomasina Smith's projects are great to do with a friend but just as easy to follow on your own; step-by-step photographs show you what to do; ideal for 7- to 12-year-olds, with simple designs to start off with and more sophisticated ones for older kids. Face and body painting can change you into someone - or even something - entirely different. The art form has a tradition that goes back thousands of years. In many ancient cultures, it was used to camouflage tribespeople when they went hunting, or as part of religious customs. In our society today, we use face and body painting mostly to have fun and to entertain - as is the case with the projects in this book! You can paint yourself for special occasions, costume parties, school plays or to go to a wonderful street carnival.Even putting on ordinary make-up is a form of face painting. With little more than a collection of face paints, sponges and brushes, you can become a cunning leopard, an Egyptian queen, a scary vampire or even Santa Claus. So, go on and transform yourself, a friend or even your parents! There is no end of fun to be had.
